AP news reported that Mexico's President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced last Friday his intention to implement healthcare reform by spending $5.7 Billion and legalizing euthanasia. The AP News reported Lopez stating:

“Why don’t we implement some program for dignified death? Why not, assisted?” 
“These are very important questions we have to resolve among all of us.”
The healthcare reform is based on providing emergency service for those who lack healthcare insurance. AP news reported:
“More than half the population has no health insurance,” 
“So this program is for them. It is for everybody, but the emphasis is to care for those with no insurance, the poorest people.” 
But under the new plan they would be eligible for emergency treatment at hospitals in the two other, better-funded systems. Lopez Obrador pledged to improve funding and staffing at the federal facilities.
Euthanasia is not a form of healthcare but rather it creates pressure for people who are not receiving proper care to end their life.

Legalizing euthanasia to save money does not benefit the poor but rather pressures people with disabilities and others with complicated conditions, to die.

I live in Mexico and did not vote for AMLO because he’s a radical socialist disguised as someone who cares about the country. As he was just inaugurated Dec 1, it didn’t take him long to unleash his radical ideation. God help this county.
